I liked Agent Carter well enough in the first Captain America film. She appealed to me, her no nonsense, cut the bullshit approach to dealing with everyone around her. But I fell utterly in love with her while I was seconded in Japan.
The 8-episode tv show was nearly everything I wanted from a 1940's spy show. There were a few things missing, such as an accurate representation of race in New York in the 40's, but these are things that can be addressed... because... it's been renewed. I wasn't sure it would be.. but it has been, and I am super excited.. because we may see some more black widow action. And some more of Peggy doing this:
Not only am I super excited about Agent Carter, but I am also somewhat obsessed with Orphan Black. It is the best show on air atm.. I love it so much. My heart aches for my poor sestra Helena.. If you haven't been following this awesomeness, then you should take yourself forthwith to the Netflix and stream the first two seasons.. then patiently wait for each episode of Season 3 to air.. and pray for my baby Helena..
Tatian Maslany is clearly one of the most talented actors working right now. Her versatility is astounding.
